UK joining Israel in celebrations is shameful by Tariq A. Al Maeena

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Last Thursday, the UK Prime Minister Theresa May was doling out compliment after another to the Israeli delegation attending the event to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, a move that displaced Palestinians from their own lands and made way for European Jews to occupy Arab lands. Speaking at a dinner function, May said that Britain is ‘proud of our pioneering role in the creation of the state of Israel’ adding that she was proud ‘of the relationship we have built with Israel.’

… More than 3,500 civilians had lost their lives, a sizeable portion of whom were women and children. Some 17,000 Gazans were injured and more than 100,000 left homeless. Michael Ratner of the Centre for Constitutional Rights aptly termed Israel’s planned ethnic cleansing and massacres of Palestinians “incremental genocide.” And their retribution for the crime against them? The perpetrators of the genocide get felicitated at a dinner reception hosted by no less than the UK prime minister in recognition of their fine efforts, while their victims slide into anonymity.

Hypocrisy is not a four letter word by Tariq A. Al-Maeena

In its short history, the [International Criminal] Court has dealt with crimes of aggression primarily in some countries in Africa.  Despite repeated calls, it has continued to ignore calls for investigations into crimes committed by Israelis against Palestinians.  It has remained mysteriously silent about the massacres of the residents of Sabra and Shatila and the butchery of civilians in Jenin crafted by Ariel Sharon the Israeli premier at the time, followed by the public display of the genocide of the women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israelis must pay for their war crimes By Tariq A. Al Maeena

In its short history, ICC has chased down events in relation to crimes of aggression primarily in some countries in Africa. However, despite repeated calls, it continues to ignore calls for investigations into crimes committed by the Israelis against Palestinians. It has remained mysteriously silent on the massacres of the residents of Sabra and Shatilla and the butchery of civilians in Jenin, crafted by Ariel Sharon, the then Israeli prime minister, followed by a public display of pre-designed genocide of women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Saudi Gazette: Have we forgotten Israeli war crimes in Gaza?

In its short history, the ICC has investigated crimes of aggression primarily in some African countries.  Despite repeated calls, it has continued to ignore crimes committed by Israelis against Palestinians.  It has remained mysteriously silent about the massacres of residents of Sabra and Shatila, the butchery of civilians in Jenin crafted by Ariel Sharon the Israeli premier at the time and the public display of genocide of the women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu… The question then for the ICC is this:  When will it hold the Israelis accountable for such continued barbarity?
